The Verdict

Veritas Scrub Plane Review By: I.Ball

Manufacturer: Veritas

Plane Type: Scrub

Model No: N/A

The Veritas scrub plane is a simple hand plane suited to carrying out the rougher work and removing lots of stock quickly.

The scrub plane is useful for planing down a board which is too wide to conventionally rip with a hand saw; this process used to be known by the term "hogging".

The plane achieves this with the use of the large mouth and the strong curved blade.

The large mouth allows lots of wood shavings to pass through the mouth quickly and easily. The 3/16 thick plane blade is ground with a 3 inch radius to ensure the plane can cope with heavy work.

The Veritas scrub plane is also built lightly to make it much easier to carry out rough planing and for making very heavy cuts without tiring the user.

Best results can usually be achieved by planing at an angle of at least 30 degrees from the run of the grain.

The Veritas scrub plane is an updated version of the Stanley scrub plane 40.

The Veritas scrub plane has had the Veritas design comb run over it giving it a contemporary look with its Bubinga handles and the two-toned stress-relieved ductile cast iron body.

The plane also has an accurately machined and ground sole, a ductile cast iron lever cap and a single plane iron which is available in a choice of materials.

The Veritas scrub plane is equipped with a choice of three plane blade types:

    - High Carbon Steel (HCS)
    - A2
    - PMV-11

The Veritas scrub plane is produced by Veritas Tools Inc. of Canada.
